The 3 things you HAVE TO know about petrol in diesel!

Water Contamination or AdBlue Contamination

Fuel contaminated with water, no matter whether it's unleaded or diesel, is certainly an important condition to deal with in an automobile - especially in modern common-rail engines.

Water or AdBlue in your fuel tank may trigger idling difficulties, irregular running, abnormal smoke and, if it's not addressed correctly, oftentimes broken injectors. Water in petrol is easier to clean out as compared with water in diesel - this is mainly due to the fact that diesel is an oil. In spite of this we are able to solve both situations rather easily.

Take note however that whenever the vehicle has been run with the water contaminated fuel it will most likely need a new fuel filter fitted seeing as the old one will be completely wet and ineffective.

Marine Fuel Drains

In the event that you've got the wrong fuel, or even contaminated fuel (most typically water contaminated or degraded fuel) in a boat we can certainly help remove it. Provided that the boat is either on land, or moored near to a car parking bay we are able to gain access to the tanks and remove the fuel. We've completed quite a few fuel drains at piers and boatyards throughout the country.

I had enjoyed a perfect evening cycling during my off day and felt satisfied the following day as I set off to aid a young couple who were on holiday in West Chelborough. They had broken down after adding the wrong fuel in their friend's Land Rover Defender 110, and they were around an hour away. I showed up at their car and laughed to myself as I heard to the wife telling off her hubby for turning out to be so daft. "Just how could you actually find a way to fill the vehicle up with the wrong fuel?" she asked him. I tried to tell her that this problem comes to pass everyday in Dorset and that it's absolutely nothing to get worried about, nevertheless he yet still got an ear bashing. Unfortunate chap. Anyways, I removed all of the wrong fuel, gave the motor a flush and filled it up with the proper fuel. While watching them drive down the road I shouted good bye and thought about what her indoors would ask me if perhaps I made the exact same blunder... I'd under no circumstances hear the end of it!

Wrong Fuel in Car Dorset - Petrol in Diesel Car West Chelborough

I'm not necessarily too hot for doing the job Sundays, and 2 weeks ago was the same. I had only just come away from the family after a magnificent roast made by the missus, and I was off to sort out a gentleman who put the wrong fuel in his cyan Volvo S90. He was located in West Chelborough so it wouldn't be a long time before I reached him. Just as I pulled up at the rear of the car and stepped out he explained to me "Thank the Almighty! I incredibly had my mind on stuff and failed to grasp that I have put the wrong fuel in my petrol vehicle. Is it likely I created harm through starting it?" I explained there shouldn't be any kind of damage and that I would remove the contaminated fuel quickly. It goes without saying that I got the fuel drained from the car and filled up with the correct fuel, and another happy motorist could continue on their traveling without the need for difficulty. He couldn't stop saying thanks to me, and this is actually what makes working on weekends in Dorset that tiny bit easier for me personally!

How to find out if I put the wrong fuel in my car?

If you’ve just filled up at a petrol station and the cars starts to act a bit strange you might start to wonder if you accidentally put the wrong fuel in it.

Well, there are a few things to can check that will be able to tell you:

  1. How is the car responding? There are some very common misfuel symptoms which can be a good indicator of wrong fuel:
    • Loss of engine power – can feel like the car has run out of fuel
    • A lot of smoke (more than usual)
    • Engine coughing or starting to splutter
    • Won’t start – or keeps stalling.
  2. Look at your fuel receipt. It will state clearly if you filled up with diesel or unleaded. If you don’t have the receipt, you can often return to the petrol station where you filled up and give them the date and time (and pump) where you refueled and they will often be able to give you a VA receipt.
  3. Smell it. Diesel and petrol have very distinctly different smells. Anyone familiar with the motor industry should be able to help you with this. Or you could even get another car to park alongside and smell the fuel caps of both, comparing them to determine what the fuel type is.
  4. Call us to come out and assess the car. In the majority of cases we will be able to tell if the car has been misfueled before beginning work on it. If we discover that the vehicle does not need a fuel drain, you will only be charged a call-out fee.
